“Pleasant.”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

I stay at the Encinitas Days Inn when I visit my daughter. It's very clean, the staff is pleasant, and it's very convenient to everything in Encinitas. The rooms are small, but they have all the essential amenities, including a microwave, refrigerator, coffeemaker, and wifi. It is close to Interstate 5, but the only time I notice any noise is during morning rush hour. Breakfast is basic--just like the rest of the hotel, but my experiences have been overall very good for an economy hotel.

For some reason every hotel in Southern California was sold out or way out of our price range. We were visiting the Oceanside area and needed a room for a couple of days. This property did offer a military discount, but the room was still overpriced. It is very close to Moonlight beach which is an awesome place, and the town of Encinitas is a charming area. It was easy to find because it was right off the freeway.

The rooms are micro-tiny. They are smaller than most of the cruise cabins that I have stayed in. For one person it would be fine but for two people we were constantly tripping over each other and out luggage. They had a strange smell and needed some updating.

The breakfast was pretty sparse. The two days we were there they pretty much ran out of everything. Plus there are only a few places to sit.

The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: If possible get a room facing away from the freeway.

This hotel used to be a good value. The beds are too small, (they seem to me to be a double, not queen size) and the Motel Manager is very unfriendly.
